This book is such a thrill ride. Props go out to the narrators for doing such a fantastic job it would not be the same without them.
This book was very enjoyable and entertaining. I thought they way that Suarez used current technology, really made the story believable. Jeff Gurner did an outstanding job narrating the story as well. Freedom (tm) is a must read as the ending of Daemon leaves you thirsty for more. Can't wait for Daniel's next novel!
Very entertaining with a great twist. It's a 2 book series, don't expect a conclusion at the end of this first book.
This is an unusual book without doubt. But if familiar with the inside workings of the internet, or of computer operating systems...it's a can't miss.
Great suspense, interesting politics, great book.
More, Mr. Suarez, please!
The narration and style of this book do take a while to get used to. All the voices of the different characters are exagerated into sterotyped caricatures of how they would actually sound, although this does help to allow the listener to tell them apart in this fast paced story.
The story however began to really grip me just a couple of chapters in and I found myself facinated, finishing it in just a couple of days.
My main complaint would be that the author often goes into way too much detail, not only in the discriptions of the technology, but in the settings and action of the book as well. This became tiresome at times, and it would've been nice if he'd allowed a little to be left to the imagination instead.
The end of the book was annoying too, as it left you hanging in the least satisfying way. I still haven't decided whether I will read the sequel yet, as I am not so sure I liked the direction that the book was moving in the last few chapters, but overall, I did think that this book was a great first listen, both thrilling and thought provoking.
I loved this book. Great narration. Great story. The few people who wrote bad reviews on this book forgot the fact that this is a sci-fi/techno-thriller book, not real life. A few people complain about the narrators voices being too stereotypical. How is that different than any movie or TV show ever made??? And as for the ending... it did leave me hanging, as if I didn't get all the answers, but that's what the sequel is for...
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A thrilling story that kept my interest the entire time. The whole book is based around computer technology, which made it great for a geek such as myself. But I think Suarez did a good job explaining the computer lingo in a way that even someone who is not technologically savvy could understand. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes thrillers, but especially to people interested in tech.
As an IT worker, I thought the author did a great job making the Daemon scenario plausible. The characters and story were very enjoyable...I wanted more more more at the end, so I'm glad there is a sequel.
Nitpicks: Whoever edited the book missed a few things; every once in awhile, I heard some improper grammar. There is something annoying about the narrator, although I can't quite figure out what it is. However, he does voices very well and the story is so good, I was willing to put my unquantified annoyance aside.
This a great techno thriller. Daemon sets up the characters and Freedom TM finishes the plot line. For those not familiar with computer terms there is a character in the book that needs to have terms explained. There are several characters (with their plot lines) in the book to keep the story moving along (and keep your interest peeked.)
